What’s different about these new standard series models compared to old d-40/d-50 models?

Over the last 60+ years Guild has produced several variations of D-40 and D-50 models. (Bluegrass Jubilee, Bluegrass Special, Ritchie Havens, among others.)

These latest iterations reflect the best attributes of legacy D-40 and D-50 models while adding modern refinements in design, playability and construction.

Celebrating Guild’s 70th anniversary, the new standard series heralds the greatest attributes of Guild’s history and rings in a new era of USA production.
